Mostly self-taught, he plays piano and drums since he was a little kid, added the bass Guitar to his favorite instruments by accident (that’s the short version of the story), plays Guitar, Valiha (typical instrument from Madagascar), ukulele and other typical instruments from different countries. He also studied with some of the best musicians in the world in NYC on a face-to-face session. On the other hand, he was the recipient of many great scholarships (huge scholarship at Berklee College of Music and Presidential Scholarship aka Full Ride at McNally Smith College of Music) and went to college. Unfortunately, on Thursday, December 14th, 2017, McNally Smith College of Music shut down for good with nothing but a 6-day notice. That abrupt change left all students and faculty - including Jax Ravel - out of activities, income, and paperwork, the reason why this benefit concert means to be.


My lawyer is working on my situation and my paperwork is being processed with no clue about what decision will come out at the end of the process. Time are weird these days. And getting prepared is key to my next journey and my paperwork. I can do that with your support. So, Thank you for considering and supporting again here, as soon as you can: www.gofundme.com/jravel

Also, mark your calendar and come at the Icehouse on April 30th 2018. I promise to create, play Beautiful, creative, wild and good music for you! I will bring my band, my friends and you bring yours!

Some of my fellow musicians in the Twin Cities set up this whole thing and I will be glad to see you join this unique event with those 4 bands: Graydon Peterson quartet, Yohannes Tona band, Steven Hobert group and the Jax Ravel Gang
